More Rohingya Boatpeople Reported to be Sailing South

MORE boatpeople are reported to be sailing south as doubts are being cast on Thailand’s version of how 91 Rohingya who originally landed in Thailand ended up 700 kilometres away in Indian territory.

The boatload of men and boys first landed on the Andaman coast, south of Phuket, before being trucked to Ranong, north of Phuket, and ”deported”.

Human Rights Watch said today that The Thai government should investigate reports that authorities forcibly pushed back to sea the 91 ethnic Rohingyas seeking asylum.
